Each day of the week offers something different: new tasks, new challenges, new questions to consider. But how we approach the nuances of daily life is often influenced by where we are in the week. Perhaps on Monday you are still recovering from the weekend and Friday you are ready to dive into it! Your energy levels during both times shape your mood and attitude.
We’ve scrounged up a few mantras specially chosen to help you face the feelings that might arise on a particular day of the week. Take a moment for yourself each day and let the words sink in.
Don’t Judge Your Beginnings Too Harshly
No one is born an expert. For every new beginning-a new career, a new hobby, a new relationship- remind yourself that you are learning on the job. Every master started as a student.
Progress is Better than Perfection
Perfection is unobtainable, but progress is always possible. When working towards a goal, steer clear of an “All or Nothing” attitude. Focus on small increments of improvement instead of a flawless finish.
Change Is Good
Change is a challenge. It is a break in the routine, an opportunity to take risks, a chance to learn something new. Change moves life forward and keep things interesting. Change is scary and change is inevitable. You can’t avoid it, so make the most of it.
Keep Moving Forward
Keep moving forward and keep your own pace. Sprint, skip, or stroll. It’s not a race. Everyone is on their own journey. Remember to enjoy it.
Have regrets? Transform them. You can’t change the past, but you change your attitude. Change it for the better. Learn to reflect on mistakes instead of regretting them. Every wrong step is a lesson in disguise, you just have to find it.
You’re ready to face this week one day at a time!
